  2. Please do not enter the school building if you are experiencing cold symptoms, fever, loss of sense of taste or smell, or if you suspect you may be infected, or have had close contact with someone who has been infected. In the event of a positive COVID-19 PCR test results up to 10 days after entering the school building, please contact the Corona Management Team at the School immediately at corona(at)
  3.  In force at the Hanns Eisler School of Music during winter semester 2021/22 are the 3G guidelines enacted by the Federal State of Berlin.

All individuals are expected to show a 3G ID. Participation in events will not be possible without an ID. Compliance with the guidelines will be monitored at the entrance.

Teaching operations during winter semester 2021/22

Behavior in the School Building

  •  Access to the building is restricted to individuals who are registered with the ASIMUT room booking program (cf. lesson planning).
  • You will be expected to wear an FFP-2 mask in the building.
  • Please maintain a distance of 1.5 m from others at all times.
  • Hygiene rules:
    - Please wash/disinfect your hands regularly (dispensers are located in the lobby and in all restrooms).
    - Please ventilate rooms regularly and adequately.
    - Please maintain proper precautions when coughing or sneezing.

Public Events

  •  As an organizer of public events, the Hanns Eisler School is obliged to maintain strict requirements with regard to the enforcement of 2Gplus guidelines, hygiene rules, maximum room occupancy, as well as attendance documentation. The only events permitted during winter semester 2021/22 will be those approved by the school administration and supervised by the Event Management.
  • The allowable number of audience members is contingent upon the maintenance of the necessary distancing between performers and members of the public.
  • Due to the characteristics of the location the concerts in the Accademy of Music Hanns Eisler Berlin will take place according to the 2Gplus regulation. Admission is only possible with proof of a completed vaccination-immunisation or a convalescent status and it is mandatory to show a negative test. Persons with a thrid vaccination-immunisation (booster) don't need a test. And this applies as well to FFP-2 mask requirements (including when seated).
  • If the performers fulfill all 2Gplus guidelines, then the distancing rules may be relaxed. The prescribed distance from the audience must be adhered to absolutely.

Internal Events

  • (Exam) auditions and lecture evenings that are not supervised by the Event Management will continue to take place as internal events.
  • All attendees must adhere to distancing and mask regulations in accordance with the 3G, 2G or 2Gplus guidelines, just as during teaching activities.
  • For internal events, i.e. those not supervised by the Event Management, the following maximum occupation guidelines for halls are mandatory:
    - GKS I+II = max. 15 people at the same time / KKS and Studiosaal = max. 30 people at the same time
  • Instructors are responsible for behavior in the hall, and must ensure that all those present are documented on the attendance card. External guests (including members of the public) must enter their full contact data on the card.

Access for External Guests

  • Apart from the above-described public events, access to the Hans Eisler School for external guests will be restricted until further notice. Access to the buildings is restricted to individuals who are registered with the ASIMUT room booking program, and have therefore been signed up by a School member.
  • The 2Gplus status of external guests must be verified by the individual in charge of registration.
  • External guests attending an (exam) audition or lecture evening must be registered by the instructor with ASIMUT in the description field. The admission of guests is the responsibility of the respective instructor. Upon arrival, guests must register at the portal.
